Resort style living in an exclusive prized Forrest location

This ultra-luxe town residence with a secure four-car basement garage, private lift access, mineral infinity swimming pool and 3 ensuite bedrooms offers all the luxury comforts as well as an easy walk to Manuka's boutique shops and restaurants, as well as many of Canberra's top schools, the Parliamentary Triangle, Manuka Oval and many of Canberra's inner south attractions.

One of just four residences in an exclusive gated complex designed by award-winning Stewart Architecture, it's a private and well oriented home that perfectly blends exquisite outdoor spaces with eye-catching premium high-end interiors and amenities. Among these are the spectacular poolside cabana luxuries with lounge area, slow combustion wood fireplace and bar, plus integrated TV with surround sound.

With the adjacent self-cleaning pool, topiary plantings and paved terrace as a backdrop, it's a setting that will likely be much favoured for entertaining or simply unwinding from the day's hustle and bustle. There's a seamless flow from here into the interior living areas where high ceilings, a soaring double-height atrium and extensive use of glass provide exceptional lines of sight from the front courtyard to the rear terrace and bring abundant natural light.

Upstairs, each of the bedrooms has its own TV, balcony access and a designer luxe ensuite with premium level fixtures. The master bedroom's luxurious ensuite features a large walk-through robe, freestanding Italian porcelain bathtub, massive separate shower and dual basins, while the bedroom itself has access to a northern terrace with views of Parliament House.
